Question about Intel D865GBF Motherboard
I just upgraded to Vista and now I am having problems. I have a Intel D865GBF MB with a WD 30G HD. My second HD is a WD Sata 400 GB but that is another problem. For about an hour after the upgrade the system was working fine. Then after a reboot, the MB stopped seeing the EIDE 30GB HD. Now the system will not boot. The MD seems to be working ok in that it boots up and runs the power up stuff. However, it will not recognize the EIDE drive. Any suggestions??
Generally its not a good idea to run both ide and sata drive at the same time.
if you are lucky in your bios it will have a emulate sata as pata/ide drives.
turn this on and be sure to select the ide drive with the OS on it as the master drive so it boots first.
also if you are doing this you will also need to change the jumpers on the sata drive as well to make it a slave and not a master otherwise you will have two master drives and it won't boot.
